Even though Barry made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane, Louisiana residents in his path should take him seriously.

In Jeanerette, winds were powerful enough to knock over a massive tree, causing it to fall into a trailer. What's worse is that the tree reportedly fell across a woman's lap along with a beehive that exploded, sending bees into the home stinging a family of four.

Neighbors and the chief described the scene as frantic as help arrived. They are reportedly receiving treatment for the stings according to KATC's contributing reporter Chris DiMaria.

Be safe and stay tuned for more updates.
